A travel guitar set apart from the pack. The Cole Clark Little Lady 1 is a short-scale acoustic built using unique Australian tonewoods and modern construction techniques.
Sustainable Australian Tonewoods
Cole Clark take great pride in their instruments, which are crafted predominantly from sustainable tonewoods indigenous to their native Australia. The Little Lady features a body made from a Redwood top and Maple back and sides, producing a bright and vibrant sound.
A Queensland Maple neck accentuates the highs and is adorned with a stunning Blackwood fingerboard cut to a 12" radius. The end result is a tone of dynamic complexity with vintage vibes.
Unique Neck Construction
The Little Lady’s neck is joined to the body via Cole Clark's 'Integral Neck Construction'. This means the neck is glued to the body face and back/side woods; essentially one piece of wood connects all the way to the soundhole, creating a unique projection. The Spanish neck joint also hearkens back to a time-trusted design used on guitars for over 300 years.
Little Lady Series Body Shape
The Cole Clark Little Lady series encompasses a range of mini, travel-sized acoustic guitars. But instead of simply shrinking down one of their existing body shapes, as we've seen other manufacturers do, Cole Clark designed a distinctive and practical body shape for its Little Lady models to ensure that they sound bigger and better than the competition.
These instruments also adhere to Cole Clark's ingenious internally-carved body top and back design. With the wood at the lower bout section cut slightly thinner, this allows the soundboard to vibrate more freely for better natural volume. But if you're concerned about this design affecting the guitar's strength; you needn't worry! With channelled bracing (another feature unique to Cole Clark), this gives extra stability to the body.
Cole Clark guitars come equipped with reliable Grover tuners that provide a smooth turning action for precise string pitching. Graph Tech TUSQ nuts deal efficient string vibration transference to the body, and also prevent strings from snagging for rock-solid tuning stability.
